Weighs 127.5 g / 81.99 dwt / 4.1 ozt Hummel name: Chimney Sweep Hummel # 12 / I TMK-6, missing bee Size: 5-3/4” Company: Goebel Master Sculptor: Arthur Moeller Hand crafted Condition: pre-owned This Hummel figurine is of a boy about to begin his job of cleaning out chimneys, clearly so because he is clean and carrying his tools of the trade. He is dressed all in black and is almost smiling, perhaps considering the few coins he will earn. It is a reminder of decades ago when everyone in a family would have to work to get my, children included. Imagine that. Many youths reject the idea of taking out the trash. This would be a nice Hummel figurine to add to your collection if you don’t already own it. Berta Hummel was a warm and caring, child loving, artistic Bavarian woman who received art training in her childhood because her father was an artist who could never afford to get trained himself. She later became a nun and was ordained as Sister Maria Innocencia. Her sketches eventually came to the attention of Franz Goebel of the W. Goebel Company. He got permission from the convent to produce three dimensional porcelain figurines based on her art, and thus she was able to help support her humble convent until her untimely death at age 37 in 1946. The bee that is on most of the figurines Goebel produced stands for Hummel which, when translated from German means bee. Hummel figurines were introduced to the public in 1935.
